A 62-year-old man was shot dead today following a stand-off with GNR police in Pinhal Novo, Palmela. The incident began earlier this morning with police trying to exercise a warrant for the apprehension of a firearm, explain reports. The man “reacted badly” and thus began a pursuit which ended this afternoon with agents locating the suspect who turned his gun on them. Ignoring requests to lay down his weapon, the man was considered an “imminent threat to the life of the police agents” who subsequently opened fire. More details will no doubt emerge shortly.
